One of the breakout sessions I was most excited to attend at last month’s Campus Technology conference was the one titled, “We All Have iPads … Now What?”. This session was offered by key participants in Seton Hill University’s Griffin Technology Advantage project, which I had written about in this article earlier that month.
This iPad rollout struck me as an exemplary case of doing this sort of thing right in the higher education setting. This is a very well thought out project, with robust executive support, and clear directives.
In the conference breakout session, in addition to going over many of the details already covered in the Educause article where I first learned of this undertaking, Mary Ann Gawelek, Mary Sparato, Phil Komarny, and Quinto Martin offered further insights into measures Seton Hill took to help ensure the program’s success.
